Ah, Christmas. How did it sneak up on me this year? One day we were still in November (heaps of time), and suddenly it is Christmas day. I didn’t even put up a tree this year. But still, some traditions are still important to me. And one of them is panettone.
Hmmm, the scent of orange peel and its connection with Christmas. Orange peel is an essential ingredient in many Christmasy things including fruit cake. And beautiful just by itself. My Nana used to make the best candied orange peel. I have tried to replicate, and while hers are hard to beat, I think I have done a pretty special job as well.
